Crown Lifting - Crown Raising

What is Crown Lifting?

Crown lifting is a pruning technique commonly used in arboriculture to remove the lower branches of a tree, thus raising or “lifting” the height of the tree’s crown. The process involves selectively removing the lower branches to increase clearance beneath the tree, allowing for improved access, increased light penetration, and enhanced visibility. 

Crown lifting is often performed to prevent obstruction of roads, buildings, or pedestrian pathways, and to maintain a desired aesthetic appearance. Care must be taken to ensure the tree’s health and structural integrity while carrying out crown raising.

I contacted Scott not realising that he was on holiday. He promised to get back to me when he got back. True to his word he came to assess the job gave me a price and left that with me. I accepted his offer I am so glad that I did. Scott turned up on time and pruned my hedges. He and his team were very professional and polite. I am very pleased with the end result and I would recommend him without hesitation. It is very refreshing in this day and age to get professional firms to commit. Scott ticks all the boxes for me.

100% recommend to anyone looking for tree surgeons. Scott turned up the same day as I called him, gave a very fair quote and fit us in to his already full schedule 4 days later. The 2 guys on the day were very friendly, professional and did a brilliant job, leaving the garden spotless and the trees completely cleared up. Couldn’t fault them in anyway and would use again without hesitation. Thanks guys 👍🏻

Scott and his team are very knowledgeable about all aspects of tree removal and pruning. They will inform you if what you want doing could potentially cause the tree to start leaning and suggest what would be best to do to stop this from happening. His team are all very polite, friendly and professional and are a credit to Scott. We are very pleased with the work they have done for us and would highly recommend them

Start to finish Scott was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Really professional and knowledgeable. He came out to quote quickly, called when he said he would and turned up when he said he would. To make things even better, Scott and the team did an excellent job. Would definitely recommend. Best service I've received in a long time.
